    Steel washers on Ebay.

    Are the steel washers good or just as good on ebay? There is other stuff to like rebuild kits. Here is a link. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SEA-D...1%7C240%3A1318

    +1, get the Riva's,
    those things might be made in the guy's garage on weekends.
    Seriously, I can't tell you how many products I have seen offered lately that claimed to be one thing and proved to be nothing more than a knockoff of a quality product. I think you can trust Jerry for genuine Riva washers. Just my 2 cents...

    I saw them on ebay too last year, but I went with riva for the same reason that bigdaddy stated. Someone want to tell me why the riva are machined and not forged? Too many imperfections with forged?? Either way, riva has held up against time (except in a few rare cases). For piece of mind I went with riva.

    Well the guy must have one hell of a face mill. Across the board my dial indicator didn't move. They are flat as hell.

    i bought the one on ebay and did not have any problem with it however i recomend if you are going for 10 psi or higher boost then i would go with the riva ones.

    That's good to know that they've held up. Like I said, I thought about it and decided to go with Riva. With your experience, it shows the guy does know what he's doing. Either way it's better than those ceramics.

    LOL, no I'm talking about other things (not ski parts) I have purchased on Amazon or what have you, that were advertised as OEM replacements, and turned out to be knocks... very close almost identical until you order then see them up close and verify the B.S. This is after getting verification in writing from the seller! ... caveat emptor, peeps.
